I knew we'd buy it as soon as I saw it because it's a colour I hate! Everything else about it was good - 193bhp turbocharged engine, CD spec with cruise, traction control and so on, auto (of course), roof rails as you can see, and a genuine Volvo towbar for the bike rack. Economy was better than the old 940, 30mpg on the commute or the motorway, but obviously not great around town. Since we prefer bikes around town anyway that's not a problem!
Our house was built in the 60s, a time when people were notoriously parsimonious with garage space and cars were smaller anyway. The Volvo was narrow enough to fit the garage, but the length was a bit of a squeeze.
